NBC vs. Conan O'Brien-this battle is getting ugly


The standoff between NBC and Conan O'Brien is taking a turn for the ugly.

NBC is accusing him of a "PR ploy" in the negotiations and holding up the process by trying to get severance packages for his staffers, which includes around 200 people.

Their statement was as follows:

"It was Conan's decision to leave NBC that resulted in nearly 200 of his staffers being out of work."

Excuse me, but NBC brought this whole situation on by themselves.  They didn't need Conan to do it for them.

Conan has a slew of big-names slotted for this week.  Will Ferrell and Tom Hanks are his guests for Friday's show, which will likely be his last.

Will Ferrell was Conan's first guest on his first show when he took over the Tonight Show in June.  It's only fitting that he be his last guest.  Afterall, 7 1/2 months is a long time.
